Gangaa 31 January 2021: Savitri sends the family in car, then comes to Ganga saying she wants to throw Ganga out of the house. They are bearing her only because of her husband, then says she did well by proving Radhika as innocent; but she must think well before trying to prove Pratab wrong the next time. Ganga calls on them to stop, then asks how she came to know how Shiv got ready to come here. Savitri and Pratab were silent.
Savitri is speechless. Ganga understands that Savitri is involved in this game with Pratab. Savitri reminds Ganga that Shiv won’t trust her at any cost, for him his mother’s trust is very strong. Savitri and Pratab leave.
At home, Dai Maa stops Shiv who was burning coals to punish himself. Dai Maa tries to convince him that Ganga only wanted to help him. Ganga watches him spread burning coals on the floor. Dai Maa stops him, Shiv asks what good would Ganga get by provoking him against his brother. Had Ganga understood him, she should have told him the truth in some other way. She only wanted to prove her able to be everything, and if Dai Maa wants Ganga to get Parvati’s place in this house. Ganga goes to stop Shiv. Shiv stops her right there and tells her to go away. With tears in eyes Ganga runs out of the room.
Ganga was crying in the room watching Parvati’s photo. Dai Maa comes to make her up, Ganga questions why Shiv thinks she is lying. It wasn’t a story. She wonders why there is always bad happening to her. Dai Maa assures she trusts her, Ganga must be right about Pratab. Ganga asks why Shiv doesn’t understand this, why he doesn’t realize he is being betrayed by his family. Dai Maa says she knows what Ganga can do, she shuts the door and cautiously tells Ganga about the secret of the family Parvati also knew. Savitri’s love for Shiv is only a show off, she only hates Shiv and wants to win over him.
Ganga asks if Shiv can’t see this, why she didn’t Shiv about it. Dai Maa asks if Shiv would believe. He has unwavering trust over his mother and brother. He is also angry with her only because of this truth. Ganga says Shiv respects and cares for Savitri, then why she hates him. Dai Maa says she wants Pratab as MathaDesh. She dislikes when people respect Shiv, he is like a stone in her eyes. Dai Maa says Ganga must win Shiv’s trust the way he trusted Parvati. The family never wants her get into Shiv’s life as a companion. Ganga was sure they must plan something once again, she wonders how to tell Shiv about it. Dai Maa says Ganga must win over Shiv’s trust so that no one can break it again, it’s not easy but also not impossible. Outside, Shiv calls Dai Maa. Dai Maa goes outside after advising Ganga again.
In the room, Savitri was determined not to let Ganga take Parvati’s place. She then scolds Pratab for being so careless hadn’t she been there. Kushaal was passing by and hears their conversation from outside. Pratab says everything went well, but Ganga ruined this game. Savitri scolds him for arguing in return. She says she would do whatever she has to, now on. In the corridor, Riya comes to Kushaal and asks him to think about their family. She takes him to the room, Kushaal was flattered.
Ganga sat lonely thinking about Shiv.
The next morning, everyone was having breakfast. Kushaal asks Riya about Ganga. Ganga comes outside and apologizes for whatever happened yesterday. She agrees to do what she is asked to. Shiv was silent. Ganga announces from today she would live in the hall. Savitri looks towards face of everyone.
Savitri questions Dai Maa if she already knew Ganga was going to stay in the hall. Dai Maa explains she never shares anything with her, she is the elder daughter in law at home. Later, Savitri says like each year she would gift everyone with the gifts and dresses. Kushaal suggests this year, Shiv and Ganga must do the Pooja.
Shiv says it doesn’t matter whether Shiv attends the Pooja or he does. Ganga is new and won’t be able to do this all. Ganga requests not to consider her as ineligible, she would try her level best to come up to everyone’s expectations. Savitri comes to take the saree from Jhumki and gifts it to Ganga. She warns Ganga about any mistake, Parvati struggled a lot for this Pooja. She takes Ganga inside for some instructions. Jhumki thinks she and her husband was disgraced today, she will not let this Pooja succeed.
Outside, Savitri shows three cloth pieces hung on the tree. Each of these clothes contain a Sipari used in Pooja; she must face each testimony to get each of these Sipari. It’s necessary for her to succeed each testimony. Parvati won over during each of this testimony in order to sit for Pooja with Shiv. As the first testimony, Ganga needs to fill a water pot which she needs to fill from pure water. It must not be filled with any impurity, all the monks would use that water before Pooja. Jhumki over hears and thinks she won’t let Ganga succeed.
Kushaal hears Riya talking on phone. She leaves the house for something important.
In the temple, Dai Ma shows a gold idol to Ganga that is kept locked all year and is only prayed on Maha Shrivratri. Pandit instructs to leave this idol here for some time, and it may later be removed. Savitri says someone must stay for idol’s protection. She sends Jhumki to show Ganga the well. Jhumki says the pot can take 50 litres of water, she must fill it in 10 to 12 turns. Ganga begin the work and struggles to the real water pot.
Pandit’s reach earlier for Pooja. Shiv and Savitri send them inside for rest, then turns to see water in the pot with Jhumki. Ganga was tired of holding water over her head. Savitri and Jhumki stood there. Ganga say she filled the pot already. Savitri shows leaves and mud in the water pot. Jhumki smirks as she had mixed it in the water. Savitri tells Jhumki to empty the pot.
Jhumki struggles to spill whole water pot. Savitri says Ganga must fill the water pot again, and if she is unable to fill it before the monks arrive she has lost the challenge already. Ganga hurries back to fill the pot, but Jhumki cheers there is a hold in the pot already. The water spill off Ganga’s pot.
Radhika was returning from school with Dai Maa and informs Ganga that there is a spillage of water in the pot. They were tensed. Radhika thinks about a way. Jhumki and Savitri bring the monks towards the water pot, Savitri wonders if Ganga has filled the pot or not. They look for Ganga’s way. She arrives with an extra water pot, in case they need to use more water. The Pandit blesses Ganga. Ganga victoriously smiles as the pot was filled with water. Savitri invites them for food.
While having food, the monks discuss this idol is really precious and contain 150 kg of gold. One of them suggests about replacing it with their fake one. Shiv had locked the idol and left the door unlocked. The pandits discuss about entering through window of the room. Pratab over hears this and thinks this is the best way about disgracing Shiv.
